# Problem 6: The average weight of three man A, B and C is 84 kgs. A fourth man D joins them, and then average weight of the four becomes 80 kgs. If E , whose weight is 3 kgs more than that of D, replaces A. Then average weight of B, C, D and E becomes 79 kgs. Find weight of A.

Problem 6: The average weight of three man A, B and C is 84 kgs. A fourth man D joins them, and then average weight of the four becomes 80 kgs. If E , whose weight is 3 kgs more than that of D, replaces A. Then average weight of B, C, D and E becomes 79 kgs. Find weight of A.

a)70 kgs             b) 80 kgs                           c) 75 kgs                         d) 72 kgs

Solution:

Let their be four persons and their weights be A, B , and D

As per statement average weight of A, B and C is 84 kg;   After joining of 4th person their average weight becomes 80, i-e;  Put value of A+B+C from eq (1);   Now let another person E (whose weight is 3 kg more than D’s weight i-e E =D+3) replaces A– then by statement of problem

Average weight becomes 79; But , Put E=71 and D=68 in above;      put value of B+C in eq (1);  So, A=75 Kgs
